As the U.S. remote workforce has grown steadily larger, there has been an increasing demand for sustainable remote workspaces. While plenty of folks still opt for working from home or the neighborhood coffee shop, there are many reasons why these spaces may not provide a healthy, productive work environment.
Coworking organizations like WeWork have filled the need for dedicated remote workspaces by creating beautiful offices across the country (and around the globe). These spaces, which are currently being leveraged by companies like Facebook and Microsoft, also create opportunities for remote workers to network and foster community with other like-minded individuals.
In this guide, we’ll go over the top 7 coworking spaces in Detroit, including each organization’s pricing model, coworking locations, and more.

WeWork’s Detroit offices include amenities like IT support, 24/7 building access, on-site staff, professional and social events, event space, common lounges, private phone booths, mail service, printers, office supplies, craft beer on tap, bike storage, and micro-roasted coffee.
